100 Years of Taiwanese Voice & 30th Anniversary of ITH

The 30th anniversary of the ITH coincides in 2023 with the centennial of the launching of ‘Taiwan Minpao.’ Both institutions are important milestones for the people of Taiwan coming into the process of exercising their self-awareness, voicing their opinions accordingly and forging a consensus around the issue. With ‘100 Years of Taiwanese Voice’ and ‘30th Anniversary of ITH’ as focal points, the exhibition makes use of specially selected diaries, newspapers, old books, manuscripts and photographs retracing the 1920s and how contemporary Taiwanese popularized ideas by means of the press, thereby sowing the seeds of conviction for change. The founding and subsequent development of the ITH help to explore Taiwan’s journey from the yoke of martial law to the state of diversity as well as the evolution of Taiwanese history from a marginal academic discipline to a new frontier in mainstream academic research.

Recall the glory days of the tea trading companies

Tokusaburō Miyoshi (三好德 三郎) Kazue Tsutsumibayashi (堤林 數衛) are both selected figures in the Traveling in Time” exhibition. Miyoshi owned the Tsujili Tea Shop which was located in the Sakaichō district (榮町) in Taipei (the shop building is on the corner of Hengyang Road (衡陽路) and Chongching South Road (重慶南路), where Starbucks Chongching branch is today). Kazue Tsutsumibayashi (堤林 數衛) began his trading journey in Taiwan and later traveled to Southeast Asia to expand his business. We heartily invite you to discover the tea and trading network that had developed in Taiwan and beyond, in the late 19th century towards the early 20th century.
